    others in hating, not only our President (who is a good man) but also anyone who isn't like them. Frankly I'm still pretty mad at the way they tried to belittle the President, calling him man-child, unamerican, not born here, etc., even attacking his tenure at Harvard, saying he was a quota student and therefore not smart and lazy.

    I was over the top over all these but the 'lazy' thing made me scream at the TV - their racism was so evident, their hatred so vitriolic, their pride in ignorance and lack of education so evident that they spoiled many a meal for me in this last year or so (and before that, too).

    I think I am entitled to a period of time in which my Schadenfreude can flourish. For a while. Not forever. Besides they totally deserve being made fun of and ridiculed. They deserve it because they earned it by their own actions.

      '47% won't take personal responsibility for their lives' 'Borrow from your parents if you want to go to college' 'Use the Emergency Room if you get sick.'

      They want to put to neophytes backed by neocons in charge of foreign policy and I'm supposed to respect their judgment as if it's a mere difference of opinion.

      Fifty-eight million people were fine with all the vitriol, dogwhistles, voodoo economics, climate change denial, anti-choice rhetoric and lies that came with Romney/Ryan.

      They do not need to be coddled. They need to enter the 21st century or be outnumbered and outvoted by people who live in the 21st century.

      The choice of our lifetime: Mitt Romney, It Takes A Pillage or President Barack Obama, Forward Together.

      to make people, on an individual level, be apologetic for voting for the President.
